My son lives in a hi-rise across the Hudson from lower Manhattan. I took these tonight. They're technically flawed, since I was shooting through his window, but they do have that certain look. Comments/criticism welcomed.

Is that second picture a different photo or a crop from the one above?

I like them, but I'd reduce the noise and work with the contrast a bit.

Unfortunately, becuase you're not shooting straight on, it's giving the illlusion (at least in the cropped photo) that the buildings are leaning a bit. I saw how you have your waterfront pretty straight, so there's not a whole lot that can be done about it.

Others with better exprience could do more in terms of giving advice than I can.


Thank you. bw!

Thanks for the feedback. The second photo was a different shot taken at 135mm. I then used the 'Grunge' setting on Photomatrix. Guess it looks grungy. Go figure.

I took some more photos tonight and edited them to produce these. They're a lot better, since I shot through an open window, used a better tripod, and exposed at f/8. First shot at 24mm and second shot at 135mm.

Like the second ones more, greater contrast, less yellow, sharper.

I like that one, too. The first ones, showing the whole skyline of lower Manhattan, have a specific purpose in mind: my son works in a hi-rise in the financial district (which is the focus of the images). His office desk has three flat-screen monitors in a row. He wants to crop down the image to fit the triple-wide monitor group as a desktop image.
